Double Fine has launched a Kickstarter project for Massive Chalice
, a feudal fantasy-themed tactical strategy game for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
Headed up by Iron Brigade
creator Brad Muir, Massive Chalice
boasts a multi-generational single-player campaign in which heroes grow old and die as the story progresses. Taking inspiration from roguelikes, Massive Chalice
procedurally generates unique characters and alliances during each playthrough, and permadeath ensures that player choices have weight and impact.
Double Fine's Tim Schafer assures that work continues on the developer's previous Kickstarter success story, Broken Age
, but notes that a separate internal team can begin work on Massive Chalice
once it's successfully funded. Massive Chalice
's funding goal is set at $725,000.
